- [Gini] Microsoft Flow is used to create automated workflows, or flows, between services like Facebook, Twitter, SharePoint, Dynamics 365, Yammer, Dropbox, Outlook, OneDrive, MailChimp, Wunderlist. Currently, there are more than 150 services we can connect to with Flow. Using these connections is as easy as logging in to use the service, and after connecting, we use Microsoft Flow to automate actions between these services, often beginning with one of more than a hundred commonly used templates to create flows in a browser or to create flows on a mobile device.
This course focuses on flows created with templates, but if the template you need doesn't exist, you can create a flow from scratch using a blank template. Microsoft Flow is integrated with SharePoint Online and Dynamics 365, which makes it wicked easy to create flows for these two applications. If you're an Enterprise user of Office 365 or Dynamics 365, you'll find Microsoft Flow on your Office app launcher, or you can sign up for a basic account, which is free on flow.microsoft.com.
Whether you're new to workflow animation or have experience with other workflow tools, I hope you'll join me on this journey with Microsoft Flow.
